Vehicle Build and Test Engineer

Autonomous Driving System Division of leading Global Automotive manufacturer is developing a research team in the US whose mission is to design and develop an autonomous research system capable of autonomous driving on pre-defined routes without the need for driver intervention.

The primary responsibility for this job is to work on the development build up, testing and continuous improvement of a SAE Level 4 vehicle development platform.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Plan, design, schedule, and execute test and validation plans for all levels of Autonomous Driving System testing.
  • Conduct data analyses, document and publish test report to support test plans, present findings and feedback to project team.
  • Ensure issues are identified, logged, tracked and resolved during each testing phase.
  • Ensure system robustness by using lean engineering and lightweight, repeatable processes.
  • Integrate, test, improve, and specify hardware and software to support the Autonomous Driving System engineering community.
  • Support prototype autonomous vehicle builds at both internal workshop as well as external suppliers.
  • Work with ADS team to develop/utilize requirement, Use Cases, Boundary Diagrams, Interface analysis, P-Diagrams, Noise Factor Management Strategies, FMEA, FMEM, DVP&R, etc.
